A Solo Exhibition by Brent Kee Young
Brent Kee Young, glass artist and Cleveland Institute of Art professor emeritus, has been recognized by scores of museums, galleries, colleges and universities in the United States and Asia. His interests are in the ambiguous nature of glass and the sense of space and volume one can create with this art form. His current series, the Matrix series, are constructions of intricate and technically complex works he created by flame working borosilicate glass rods into layers of glass webs.
Studio Glass from Around the World
The final exhibition of the 2017 Summer of Glass will be selected from numerous international regions, each reflecting the influences of the local culture and its historic roots.
